Series

CBS graces us with a bonus Everybody Loves Raymond (8:30 p.m., CBS) this week. It's a rerun (Marie is jealous when Debra hires a nanny for the kids), but what the heck. On a rerun of Norm (8:30 p.m., ABC), Mr. Sensitivity milks sympathy from the boss by pretending to be an alcoholic. The Sopranos (9 p.m., HBO) repeats the very instructive episode about the one thing that mafiosos won't admit they do in bed. Chazz Palminteri directed this week's episode of Oz (10 p.m., HBO), in which McManus is accused of sexual harassment and Schillinger's enemies hatch a plot against him. South Park (10 p.m., Comedy Central) begins "The Cartman Chronicles," a month of episodes revolving around you-know-who.
